    That depends on the license of the asset. If it's from the Asset Store though, you should be fine unless it's a restricted asset like Unity-chan.

    None of those are restricted assets, so you're fine.

    If otherwise not stated in the details you have this EULA: https://unity3d.com/legal/as_terms If the asset has special license it's mandatory to have a link in the description to the license.

    "Free" doesn't necessarily mean 'commercial use' friendly, so it's always advised to check the given license first. It may come with the package.

    Generally said, assets from the Asset Store can be used for commercial projects - unless otherwise stated (see the Adam Character packs for an example). If in doubt, ask the developer of the asset in question.

    No actual need to ask the developer. If they haven't made it a restricted asset and included a separate license, then they are bound by the asset store EULA.

    As they're covered by the Asset Store EULA: yes you can.
